The Niña – Most Historically Accurate Columbus Replica Ship Ever Built
The Niña is a replica of the ship on which Columbus sailed across the Atlantic on his three voyages of discovery to the new world beginning in 1492. Columbus sailed the tiny ship over 25,000 miles. That ship was last heard of in 1501, but the new Niña has a different mission. We are a floating museum, and we visit ports all over the Western Hemisphere.
Pinta – Our Second Columbus Replica Ship
Pinta was recently built in Brazil to accompany the Nina on all of her travels. She is a larger version of the archetypal caravel and offers larger deck space for walk-aboard tours and has a 40 ft air conditioned main cabin down below with seating. Pinta is available for private parties and charters.
Historic replicas of Columbus’ ships, the Nina and the Pinta, will arrive at The Wharf on February 15 and remain in port until February 24. These ships were fully built by hand, without the use of power tools. Come enjoy this educational opportunity to explore exquisite craftsmanship and learn about the Portuguese caravel that many former explorers traveled upon in centuries ago.
The general public is welcome to walk aboard for a self-guided tour of these vessels while docked at the Wharf Marina.
Teachers or organizations wishing to schedule a 30-minute guided tour with a crew member should call 1-787-672-2152 or email email@example.com.
